I came across this company while in Germany at the IMM trade show and was impressed with their stylish offers and what intrigued me was that it was made from 100% stainless steel. First a little introduction on Novito.
“Nivito is a Swedish company with a Swedish innovative design and at the same time a long experience in the HVAC industry. Nivitos faucets are made of 100% solid stainless steel, which means an unlimited surface and acid resistance. Stainless steel is more than twice as durable as brass and is an unbeatable materials from an environmental and quallity standpoint.
Nivito focus exclusively on the latest technology in our mixers, both for function and environment. Our method of quality assurance is carefully designed and optimized to achieve the best quality.”
STAINLESS STEEL FAUCET
The faucet structure consists of 100% stainless steel
Solid Stainless Steel
Means that it is stainless steel straight through the faucet.
The faucet structure is composed of over 99% brass
0,2-0,3μm Chrome, 8-12μm Nickel layer.

Also 80% of the Novito line of faucets have an Eco Saving feature that will help reduce your usage by half of what is presently the European standard. One of the other things that I have been seeing more and more of and not only in Europe but in the US too, is a move to black and white and a few other colored faucets.
I definitely think there is a place for matte finish faucets for a few reasons. One is that they add a touch of uniqueness to the kitchen and set it apart, assuming everyone doesn’t get one and the second is that they may show less finger prints vs a polished finish.
They also have some great looks in stainless steel too.
On these two models the front pulls off to reveal the attached and integral spray wand.
What we seem to be seeing more of are clean simple but elegant lines and a more modern look. I saw this many times all over the IMM show and it really was almost universal in so many of the booths there.
The Extended kitchen faucet, or as Novito calls them “taps” comes with a smooth model above with the pull out sprayer or the more commercial looking model which looks like it belongs in a kitchen that truly enjoys the art of cooking.
In fact the Novito line is really quite impressive as you can see and there are many other models and choices to see on their site- Novito
I have written to the company to see if their entire line or any of it is available in the US market and will update this when I hear back from them. Personally I hope so because the idea of 100% stainless steel in a faucet is something that I would think many would be interested in having.
